Most Welcome Presence

Maggie Horton, as portrayed by Suzanne Rogers, has been a great influence on the good folks of Salem all year. We may make fun of her uncanny ability to overhear the wrong conversations... but we love her for it. And the fact that Days is using Suzanne -- a vet on the show since 1973 -- so much lately makes us love the show even more.
Agreed. They've really impressed me the way they beefed up the vets this year. Even though they remained supporting characters to the main set, they were used for a surprisingly large amount of time.

Biggest "Wait, Where Did You Go?"

You guys, seriously. We love these Patch and Kayla, and in February 2009 they just... disappeared. They'd returned to Salem in 2006 after a long sabbatical, and Kayla even had a baby in 2008. We would LOVE to see them back -- Stephanie could've used her dad around when she was kidnapped!
Agreed X 100!

Strangest Imprisonment

You remember Steph's kidnapping, right? Where that bizarre (but hot) gardener Owen took her hostage and hid her in a morgue? And Philip pretended to be a corpse to try and save her? Yeah, that was kinda creepy.
Yeah, I still don't understand what the point of Owen was.

Best Character Rehab

Remember when Melanie was a total beeyotch? We do. And now -- despite giving Carly some sarcastic lip recently -- she's actually, well... kinda cool and fun. Total 180, right? We wonder if her burgeoning relationship with Philip will last through '10...
I have to agree on this one too. She has come a long way from what she used to be in 2008.

Saddest Exit

Don't even get us started. When (a now paraplegic) John and Marlena reunited, and decided to permanently leave Salem to seek treatment for John in Switzerland, it was one of the saddest moments in our Days-viewing life. JOLENA 4EVA!!
If by saddest, they mean disrespectful, then I agree. Worst exit for a couple that literally carried this show for a whole decade.

Best Use of Poisoned Bon-Bons

Kate was so angry that Chloe cheated on her son Lucas with the handsome Dr. Daniel that she took some delicious candies, filled them with POISON, and fed them to her. Natch. Daniel saved his beloved's life, but Kate hasn't gotten her comeuppance... yet. We adore Kate, especially because she's so rational.
The fact that this is even a category is why DAYS is considered a joke at times.

Best Return, Pt. 1

It was big news when Crystal Chappell returned to Days in October '09. Carly, the character she'd last played almost 20 years prior, had murdered her husband Lawrence and was looking for Bo Brady's help. Her presence has only added to the stress in Bo's marriage to Hope. And just who is this mysterious daughter Carly keeps speaking of?

Best Return, Pt. 2

Hot on the heels of Carly's return to Salem came the effervescent and evil Vivian Alamain, Lawrence's wacky aunt who has vowed to enact revenge. Her mere presence delights us. LOOK AT THAT HEADSCARF! 'Nuff said.
Agreed on both counts.
